The Speedmaster—famous for being the only watch to have been worn on the moon—is an icon of the OMEGA company. It’s natural, then, that the brand is a patron for the Parisian exhibition “The Moon: From Real Travel to Imaginary Travel.” For the opening, OMEGA invited clients and journalists to enjoy an experience outside time and space: in a black-and-gold setting presided over by, of course, the moon. Guests like Claude Lelouch, Laury Thilleman, dancer Juliette Gernez and astronaut Jean-François Clervoy immersed themselves in the history of the legendary Speedmaster Moonwatch. It has now been reissued in a limited series, as a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of man’s first step on the moon. Fun fact: it is also the watch OMEGA offered Richard Nixon in 1969.
